The explosives I remember were from Ozzfest 99. Actually now that I think back I also remember hearing what sounded like gunshots in the distance, but that was the year when everybody just set up camp on the side of the highway because Gorge camping was full of DMB fans. That shit was even more lawless, and everybody was pissed.
I've been in District 9 on the 4th of July and it was a fucking war zone. I honestly don't know how we didn't burn the place down. On the other hand, this was back in the 90s and I don't recall Eastern Washington being that flammable back then.
Back in the Ozzfest days there were big bonfires, fireworks, and I even heard rumors about people lighting off explosives like dynamite or some shit. I was less safety cautious back then.
The simple fact is that there are going to be people splitting on which to go to if they played twice. A lot of people probably won't buy another ticket and drive back to the Gorge to see them play the same stage a couple months later. Then you might have the fans that just want to see them play a real headlining set on their own tour and hold out for that. Either way you have people not buy tickets to one or the other. I imagine Sasquatch will sell regardless, but it would seriously impact sales on their headlining stop.
Also, are there going to be fireworks? If so, I hope just controlled fireworks on the main stage or something. That would be crazy. If people try to bring them in the campground I think shit will burn to the ground.
They had fireworks both nights at Paradiso. These are a couple videos I found really quick. I actually wasn't at the main stage for either of these guys, I just heard about it.
I have such a diverse musical taste and catalog, I don't think I could pull this off without going in with somewhere to start. I think a mid-life crisis mix for me would be all 90's music. Damn, even that could be too broad of a scope for me.
Anybody want a Cysquatch Nu-Metal mix? Didn't think so.
